Yes, looks like there is a new tablet we can all drool over and now pre-order. This one in particular from Acer comes outfitted with the following:
- Android 3.0 Honeycomb
- 1.0GHz NVIDIA Tegra Processor
- 10.1″ Display
- 1280×800 LCD screen
- 1GB Memory, 16GB Hard Drive
- WiFi-only, and more.
Sounds nifty, ‘eh? Sure does. With the different tablets coming out, this new Acer Iconia Tab A500 looks to fit in just fine, and will give the competition a run for its money. The official price of this device has been set at $449.99 and can be pre-ordered at Best Buy.
Hit the break for the full press release…..
If you are looking to buy a tablet, you cannot tell me that you are not intrigued about the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer. If you haven’t heard about it yet, it is a 10.1-inch Honeycomb tablet with a NVIDIA dual core processsor. What makes it intriguing is that it has a physical keyboard dock. We have heard rumors about it being released on Amazon and at Best Buy next month for a price of $499.00. If this holds true, this might be the best Android tablet out there.
We have known about the Transformer for some time now, but they have officially released the full specifications.
It may have been a long time coming, but Best Buy Connect is now officially carrying and supporting 4G devices and services via Clearwire WiMAX. Now you’ll be able to check out all kinds of devices at Best Buy as they now carry over 20 different WiMAX devices. I’m starting to wonder where they’re finding the room at the Best Buy Mobile area to display all these devices!
Signing up for one of these through Best Buy Connect will cost you $45 in the US on a month – month basis or a 2 year contract, whichever flavor of 4G you like. If you go with the 2 year contract however, you’ll get “up to $150″ hardware subsidy and the $35 activation fee waved, if you go month to month, you’ll pay to activate.
The Motorola Xoom is making its way across the border to Canada, and pre-order pages went live for both Best Buy and Future Shop online. If you’ve been holding out for a great tablet in Canada, you’re not going to find much of a better one from the Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi model.
The Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi has 32GB storage, microSD support, wifi 802.11 a/b/g/n at a full 100Mbps data transfer rate. It also has the NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GHz processor, 5mp camera on the back, 2mp camera on the front, all running Android 3.0. The tablet will only run you $599.99 at either Best Buy or Future Shop, and shows it should be delivered to your location by April 15th 2011. Not too shabby eh?
For those of you that are members of Costco, you can order the Motorola XOOM for $589. That is $10 cheaper then anywhere else plus a free gel case is included. The downside is shipping will not begin until April 1.
The XOOM is expected to be available at Best Buy, Radio Shack, Staples, Walmart, and Amazon on March 27 for $10 more ($599). It is also rumored that select Sam’s Clubs will also carry the XOOM for $539. If that price holds up it will be an amazing deal. I personally will be surprised if Sam’s Club goes that low but we will let you know when more information is available. Hit the source link for more information or to place your order.
It has been rumored for a while and now it is official. Motorola has announced the 32gb Wi-Fi only XOOM tablet for the United States. It will be available on March 27 at Best Buy, Amazon, Costco, Radio Shack, Staples, Walmart, and select Sam’s Clubs. The price will be $599. The $599 price was originally leaked from a Staples Ad. About 2 weeks ago, it was also leaked that Sam’s Club will carry it for $539. It will be interesting to see if that price holds.
The $599 price matches with the 32gb version of the Wi-Fi only Ipad 2. I would still like to have seen it cheaper, but at least it is in the ball park. The XOOM does have a better screen and the SD card slot for expandability when it gets enabled.

For those of you considering whether or not to buy a Nexus S we’ve got information that may help sway you in one direction. Best Buy is offering the Nexus S for $100 with a T-Mobile contract. That’s half the price of what the Nexus S is usually sold for. The offer expires March 23rd, however I wouldn’t wait until the 22nd to go to a store. With a deal this good there’s a good chance they’ll sell out before that March 23rd date. For more information on the deal visit Best Buy’s website.

Our friendly Canucks up north at Best Buy Canada are now taking pre-orders for the Motorola Atrix. For $50 of your hard-earned Canadian cash, you can secure a spot in the pre-order mix for this hotly anticipated dual-core phone. Sadly, no release date is given on Best Buy Canada’s website, but hopefully it’s not too far away. If you’re in Canada and want one of these cool looking phones, I hope you’re lucky enough to get one.

We reported to you yesterday that the HTC Thunderbolt may be delayed past March 4th, but it seems we may have good reason to believe that it’ll be out by March 10th over at Best Buy judging by the pic above. The first line shows the HTC Thunderbolt available on March 10th through Best Buy Mobile in all stores.
Whether that came out after we heard about the March 4th delay from Twitter, or before remains to be seen, but we’re keeping our eye on it regardless!
A Best Buy in Roseville, CA tweeted that the HTC Thunderbolt, the much anticipated 4G LTE Android smartphone from Verizon Wireless, will not see release until March 4th. This device was supposed to be released at the end of the month, so it may be a disappoint for those wishing to try out Verizon’s 4G LTE connectivity.
Other devices that will have 4G LTE connectivity include the Motorola XOOM, which is already on sale. Although the XOOM does not have 4G LTE now, users will be able to mail the device in at a later date for the upgrade.
For those of you who still want to wait a little longer for the HTC Thunderbolt, it’s expected to cost you around $299 with a two-year contract. In-store preorders are still being accepted as well.
